Stroke Path Opacity

Stroke Path Opacity
Hi All...
If I've missed this, apologies. I'm using the Path more and more and very useful it is too. However, I seem to come unstuck when I apply colour using the 'Stroke Path' option. Basically I need to know if there's a way of determining the opacity of the stroke line? In some cases I don't need to have such a 'dense' colour. I want to see a little of what I've 'painted over' so as to keep some of the detail.
Thanks for your time.

Two ways:
1) Stroke on a separate layer and adjust opacity (it is usually better to keep separate drawing elements in their own layers anyway...)(the only solution if your use "Stroke line")
2) Adjust the opacity of the paint tool that you use for stroking.

RE: Stroke Path Opacity
Thanks for the response.
"Stroke on a separate layer and adjust opacity" Sorry, not getting you on this one. I'm not clear how one adjusts the opacity. I'm OK using the paintbrush, that's not a problem, just move the slider in the toolbox.

I'm asking about the 'Stroke Path' Option. I do this on a separate layer anyway.. ...How do I adjust the opacity when there doesn't seem to be an option please. Apologies if I'm not getting this correct.
Thanks

RE: Stroke Path Opacity
There is an "Opacity" slider at the top of the Layers list, to set the opacity of the active layer...
